Night Windows blows off steam about the working week in “Interview”
When Philly singer-songwriter Ben Hughes isn’t busy releasing an album a month, he’s in the band Night Windows (pictured above). When Night Windows isn’t sitting on rooftops drinking Natty Boh, they’re making catchy, Replacements-esque indie rock.
The band just released a new music video for their song “Interview,” and it finds Hughes and his mates venting about those times when the 9-to-5 grind gets in the way of their more creative true selves: “Clean shaven, making it seem like I have enough money but really it’s just a lie / I don’t even feel like myself when I’m wearing a tie.”
The video, directed by Kathleen Poliski, begins in Night Windows’ practice space and ends at triumphant house show, and gives a good sense of struggles and small glories of rock and roll. Check it out below. The song can be found on the new split EP Greetings From Night Windows & Pilkington, which you can download here.
